Great place to grab an on-the-move lunch. There's no seating, and it's popular so there's usually a line but the line moves quickly. Their Pork & Fig sandwich was fantastic. The pork is well seasoned and the figs give the sandwich a nice sweetness. Will definitely be back.

always surprised by how quickly the line moves. The corned beef is one of my favorite sandwiches in the city. I work blocks away and enjoy making the trek for a good sandwich

Maybe I'm just not a sandwich person, but I think this place is overrated. I mean, it's good, but not heavenly amazing - I can live without trying this place. The prices can be steep for a sandwich, but the portions are ginormous! I ended up only finishing half my sandwich. I ordered the Corned Beef & Cabbage Sandwich since I heard good things about it. I really enjoyed the bread, but the sandwich could definitely use more corned beef and less cabbage. I feel like I was just eating a cabbage sandwich instead of a corned beef sandwich. The cheeses went well with the sandwich, but it wasn't anything spectacular. It's just a regular sandwich to me... and I prefer those from Safeway actually...

The Sentinel is a great sandwich spot in SoMA, very close to the financial district. The line can be long at peak lunch hours, but it moves relatively fast. You'll definitely be in and out in under 15 minutes. The big differentiator here is the bread. The bread is baked fresh every single day, and it's delicious. My favorite sandwiches are the trout with fennel and apple, the corned beef (which is basically a Reuben), and the roast beef, which is served extremely rare. The agua fresca is usually pretty tasty, and the women who work here are always super friendly. I'm a fan of service with a smile.

I dunno, man. People rave about the Sentinel, but maybe I've just had way better sandwiches? The sandwiches I've gotten here have not blown me away in the slightest. They always feel like they're lacking something. This coupled with all the hype makes me wonder what's going on here. I've been twice now, thinking maybe I misordered the first time. Both my boss and I agreed the sandwiches weren't "all that". Perhaps I'm the minority, and I've been spoiled by the sandwich gods or something. I don't know. I will say that the ordering system is extremely efficient.

The coffee cake is really good here. For lunch they always offer a few regular options as well as rotate a couple things daily. A lot of people like getting the corned beef but I find it to be way too rich. I enjoy the lamb and eggplant sandwich. I also like the BALT (basil, avocado, lettuce, tomato) with goat cheese. They often run out of their popular items so try to go early. There's also no seating so plan to take it to go.
